We had excellent tableside service from Francisco, the ambiance was great. We will definitely be back very soon! Thank you for a great experience!

    We were seated and poured some water , not offered any bread as we saw other tables getting. After about another 20-30 min wait our drink order came . Then as time went by I thought at some point they will come back and ask if we would like to put in orders for food. We waited and waited thinking maybe they were just busy . Our waiter came and topped off a wine glass across from us not once even glancing at our table. I actually had to stop our “server” and asked if we could put in app orders . Based on the lack of service we will not be dining here again . Extremely dissatisfied with the service.

    In from out of town and I had eaten here several years ago and it was great. This time it was TERRIBLE! I ordered filet and lobster, wife ordered Halibut. Both were extremely overcooked the first round. I ordered filet MR and it was well done. Halibut was so tough she need a knife to cut it. Overcooked second time as well! So was my lobster…. This is Boston for goodness sakes. Manager and waiter did nothing for us except take her meal off. Not even an offer for a free desert! We were there for over 2 hours! My wife was so frustrated, which she NEVER gets, so she didn’t even eat. Server was no where to be found when the food arrived so it took probably 5 minutes to even take our meals back to the kitchen. Overall, bad experience and bad service. At those prices I would pick another place. No wonder they weren’t even full on a Saturday night….

    We picked this restaurant as we needed to be someplace quite with good food reviews. It is that. A few items bothered us. At 35 plus entrees and all sides extra, do they really need to charge for bread ?? And the very nice waitress kept trying to take it away during the meal as if it was an appetizer. My crab cake was excellent and my partner’s shrimp scampi was garlicky good. Another no-no was that our appetizer plates were not cleared before the next course was brought and left on the table. And the bus boy said his job was to bring the food not clear it! Seems like some training is in order. At those steep prices, this shouldn’t happen.

    I needed a place that took a reservation for 11 on OpenTable at 9:00 pm in downtown. Oceanaire Seafood Room fit those needs and did not disappoint. I'm from Colorado and have dined at the Denver location. However, the historic building where Oceanaire has is beautiful. The staff was very attentive and did not rush us even though we stayed passed closing time. The crab cakes rivaled DC's Old Ebbitt Grill, calamari was crispy and tasty, and my mixed seafood grill was delicious. Our group had several cocktails that were all terrific too.

    Excellent food, service and ambiance! The food was top quality, pricey but we enjoyed every dish. Cocktails were wonderful and different – they were pretty strong, bread was nice and warm even though they charge you for it with the crudites, calamari was fair, salmon was delicious with mashed potatoes, shrimp fried rice was delicious and not spicy, lobster mac & cheese was delicious and plenty of lobster, crabcake was mostly crab not a lot of filling. Waiter was very attentive, very professional.

    Made reservations while here with friends on vacation. The restaurant is really gorgeous inside, but a little too dark inside making it hard to review your menu. We had a very friendly server (Frank) whom was very attentive and provide information on the menus and info on places to visit while in Boston. I had the chowder and shrimp and grits. The chowder was a little runny, but had great flavor and plenty of meat and potatoes. The shrimp and grits were also really good. My wife had the halibut with noodles. She had a nice size piece of fish which she really enjoyed. My friend had the shrimp fried rich which also included lobster and shrimps and thought it was amazing, he didn't want to share with his wife. It's a little expensive, but a great meal for all.

    Ambiance and service were great! The food was delicious but way too salty. I had the mixed seafood grill and the amount of salt used was overkill. The other dinners commented that their food was also very salty.

    Anniversary dinner for two seafood lovers visiting Boston. Great feel in the main dining room that used to be a bank lobby. Oysters were delicious (try the Pink Moons), but served before our drinks arrived, literally dumped on the table with no explanation and the shucker’s ticket still sticking out of the ice. Salads served before we had finished the oysters, and main course was served by a different waiter with no follow-up. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive, but obviously new on the job. She’ll get the hang of it. Had a couple tawny Ports at the very cool bar after dinner and enjoyed the drinks and conversation with the bartender.

    Overall we were extremely happy with the quality of the food. What we were not happy with was the service. We were being attended to by the bartender. It took a while to get drinks then it took a while to be able to order appetizers. Once we ordered appetizers within 2 minutes he was back at the table again to try to get us to put our entrees in. Several times there were visibly empty glasses on the table and we were never asked if we wanted another drink. Two of us had sangria and were never asked if we wanted another. I was served a Diet Coke in a glass that was broken in two different places. When I noticed I walked up to the bar and stood at the bar to try to get the bartender's attention to give me another glass. Recognizing that I was one of his tables you would think he would come right over because why would a dining room Diner come to the bar? But he didn't he went to the other end of the bar and went to do something else. The other bartender came over and fixed the problem and apologized. This was originally much longer and a lot more descriptive but Open Table won't allow me to post a review of this long As I mentioned before the food was excellent. The dishes we had were the octopus carpaccio, the filet, the Yellowfin seared tuna, and the mix Seafood Grill. I recommend all of them.

    food is on pointe. Best crab cake in city. Restaurant week offered great value. Menu did make reference to my daughters’ Birthday as I put in the notes this was a 16th bday celebration. However, When she received her dessert no candle no acknowledgement what a let down,,, nothing. In past visits a flaming baked Alaska has been brought out, we dine here for special occasions have been for 12 years. Also had to ask for water when glass was empty, had to ask for bread, filet was not cooked rare as requested and was medium had to leave the table to find the waiter to send back as nobody asked us. 🥲

    The food here was very disappointing. I got filet and lobster tail. The tail was grilled and over cooked. The steak was not good. We all thought the oysters Rockefeller and clam chowder was good. We also waited almost 40 minutes between appetizers and main course. Won’t be eating there again.

    We had a wonderful meal at Oceanaire with an excellent waiter, Jesus, who helped make the experience very special for us. He greeted us warmly and was super attentive to our needs the entire evening! The seafood we ordered was fresh and delicious! We topped off dinner with a flaming Baked Alaska, and it was magnificent! The entire evening was relaxing, thanks to superior service and scrumptious food!
